"Let [us] recognize the fact that [when] the rights of the humblest of citizens are as worthy of protection as the rights of the highest, all [our] problems will be solved, and whatever will be in store for [us] in the future, whether prosperity or adversity, whether [we] have foes without or foes within, whether there shall be peace or war. If [we] could only live [our] lives based on the eternal principles of truth, justice and humanity, with no class having cause for complaint or grievance, then [our] Republic would stand and flourish forever"

– Julian Bond, "Racial Equality in the United States"
